Kitchener’s Island, also known as El Nabatat Island, is a small, oval-shaped island in the River Nile, 1.2 km away from Citymax Hotel Aswan. The Aswan Botanical Garden is located on the island. The island, as a whole, constitutes the Aswan Botanical Garden. The gardens are particularly popular among the local people and tourists as a park for a quiet afternoon away from the noise of the city and weekend picnics. It’s incredibly beautiful and a great spot for taking photos.
